Xenoblade Chronicles 3 release date gets moved up to July 2022

Fans of cult-classic JRPG franchise Xenoblade Chronicles won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on the third main series entry into the franchise. Originally slated for a September 2022 release, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been bumped up to 29th July 2022 instead.

You can check out the new release date trailer below:

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 seeks to bridge the story gap between Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 by taking place in a far future. This third entry will take players to the world of Aionios, home to two hostile nations.

Fans of the Wii U’s Xenoblade Chronicles X might still be feeling a bit left out here since Monolith Soft have stuck to their word of not bringing that title over to Nintendo Switch. Alas, maybe one day that game will eventually be ported.

Back to the topic at hand though, Xenoblade Chronicles 3’s battles battles will play out directly in the overworld in a similar manner to the previous titles.

Players will have access to six characters in their party and will have to make use of each character’s strengths and special abilities to defeat strong foes. Strategic gameplay and tactics as well as positioning will be necessary in battle. Victory will not come easily.

Characters you befriend throughout your adventure will join you in battle and further increase your attack capabilities. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will also feature a combination mechanic where if certain conditions are met during battle, each of the tag-team pairs, Noah and Mio, Lanz and Sena, Eunie and Taion can combine into a giant form called Ouroboros.

Each Ouroboros has its own powerful move set, and deciding when to transform will most likely be the key to winning battles in the game.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 launches exclusively on Nintendo Switch on the 29th of July 2022 and we’re looking forward to reviewing it here. Especially since we loved the Definitive Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles which released in 2020.
